Discussion

Together with our partner CFCR the KAS South Africa is hosting a discussion on the topic of "Freedom of Expression and the Dark side of Social Media" on July 28 2018.

Over the past two years, the Centre for Constitutional Rights (CFCR), supported by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), has hosted an annual Youth Dialogue. The event is aimed at unpacking a constitutionally-enshrined right - this year’s focus will be freedom of expression. The event will offer learners from various schools an opportunity to engage on a topic of interest with an expert in the field, as well as their peers. Our goal is to empower learners to make informed decisions regarding responsible social media use in the digital age.

The National Youth Day 2018 is coming up on June 16. Building on that, the KAS South Africa together with its partner CFCR wants to discuss an issue, which remains highly topical. Social media has brought with it new channels and possibilities to articulate ourselves. Welcoming those new opportunities, at the same time, we must be aware that they also bring new challenges and responsibilities.

Karyn Maughan - Author, and award-winning broadcast, radio and print journalist will give a presentation followed by an interactive Q&A session with the learners. A mix of private and government schools will be invited to the event.
